Audio Inputs and DiskRecorder Count Off

0 votes

Hello. Here's a quick and simple one that I just can't seem to work out:

As soon as I have an AudioInput Class and a DiskRecorder Class in the same Sound

I get this dialog everytime I play the Sound:

I'm not working with everything tempo related.

How do I turn this off?

Hi Andreas,


It is just a count-off before recording. Your recording will not be this tempo related.

Just a 4, 3, 2, 1...GO!

Thanks Roland!
Maybe I didn't make my question very clear:

The DiskRecorder is 'gated' so a count in does not make any sense in my case. I just assume that there's a setting somewhere that would disable that dialog box appearing every time I play the Sound.

If there isn't a setting to prevent this maybe Carla could create one? It really just a workflow issue for me.

In my sound design focused workflow I never need a count in - but I do like to make the tools I use on a daily basis as fast as possible to work with.
Count-in removed (as of the next software update). If you do not want to start recording immediately, you can use the (sample-accurate) Trigger field to indicate when the recording should start.
SSC, maybe you can create a checkbox Count on/off in the Preferences?
That's great! Many thanks!
Roland, good idea! We've added an option to the Performance Preferences in Kyma to turn off the dialog.
